Central New Yorker’s Are Tipsy Over Wine Ice Cream
No you're not dreaming, wine ice cream really exists, and you can find it at Mercer's Dairy in Boonville.
Are wine and ice cream two of your favorite things? The geniuses at Mercer's Dairy in Boonville know you too well; they've invented a wine infused ice cream that will make you wanna hug them for days.
Their wine ice cream has been available for years but still remains of the area's best kept secrets. Back in 2008 Governor David Paterson passed "Mercer's Law." Here's what the legislation outlines according to Syracuse.com:
The ice cream is limited to 5 percent alcohol by volume, prohibited the sale to anyone under age 21 and required the usual warning statements about alcohol use to be printed on the label.
Their ice cream is currently available in 8 different flavors: Peach White Zinfandel, Cherry Merlot, Strawberry Sparkling, Chocolate Cabernet, Red Raspberry Chardonnay, Port, Riesling, and Spice. And you thought chocolate and peanut butter was an exciting collaboration.
